Substance Use Prevention


Prevention is a proactive approach; creating an environment that promotes the health and well-being of individuals and communities, which prevent problems before they occur. Our substance use prevention programs implement evidence-based strategies in the community to prevent use of all substances.

What We Do:

  • Advocate for the use of best practices in preventing substance misuse.

The Central Valley Health Tobacco Prevention and Control program follows The Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) Best Practices for comprehensive tobacco control programs.
Our focus is to:

  • Provide education and information to state and local policy makers and the public regarding current issues in tobacco control.
  • Assist tobacco users seeking cessation.
  • Work with local policymakers, businesses and organizations, and schools to develop and adopt tobacco-free policies in the workplace and the community.
  • Prevent youth initiation to tobacco.

The Partnership for Success (PFS) grant is a federally funded grant program administered by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). This grant requires states to use the successful evidence-based prevention systems and structures put in place through their completed Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant (SPF SIG). The priority of PFS is the prevention of underage drinking among 12-20 year olds.

The goal of PFS is to:

Prevent the onset and reduce the progression of substance abuse

Reduce substance abuse-related problems

Strengthen prevention capacity/infrastructure at the state and community level Leverage, redirect and align funding streams and resources for prevention
